Per Brad McQuaid of Sigil, "WoW is a fantastic game, but Vanguard is designed with additional polish but also additional depth and freedom to experience more from a virtual world." taken from http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/post/1268179
Vanguard has more polish than WoW???!!! Come on now, lack of polish has been the topic of so many Vanguard posts.
A more realistic quote is "If I had been in a coma for the last 5 years and gone straight from Everquest to Vanguard, I would totally have loved Vanguard." You can read the rest of that blog here http://tobolds.blogspot.com/2007/01/more-positive-spin-on-vanguard.html
This was a game I so much wanted to like. I'm still hopeful in six months or so, it might be more fun and playable.
